Both you and your competitors share the challenge to keep your stakeholders as engaged and satisfied as possible. We are all in some way accountable to and dependent on those stakeholders.
Everything you do has an impact and how they perceive you has repercussions on your organisation.
I’ll show you what you can do to take better care of them than your competition, while even gaining an edge by improving your efficiency.
Farmers have a lot of responsibility when it comes to preserving the water quality of our planet. Consequently, a lot of rules and laws apply to managing their farms. European, Belgian and Flemish legislation all have their say in this matter, which further complicates the farmers' businesses.
De Mestbank, a division of Vlaamse Landmaatschappij (or VLM) is a governmental institution that is responsible for the imposition and control of the legislation concerning the protection of water against nitrogen and phosphorus from agricultural source. She provides support for farmers and makes sure everyone abides by the rules. An important part of the rules stipulate how much and when Flemish farmers are allowed to fertilize their land.
What is this magical "Digital Workplace"? Why should you be interested in it? We would have not had a straight answer to this question when we started our compelling digital workplace journey.

When you finally release that new application you have been working on, it is important to remember that this is just the first stage in its life.

Are you struggling with the vast amount of information on paper coming into your organisation every day?

When you hire consultants, you expect magic to happen. Our vast amount of experience, similar cases, profound knowledge and standardized methods should spark in pretty much every sentence.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
— Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry Into the Limits of the Possible
And Clarke was right. We'll interpret technology a little bit broader than just hardware and software. There's much more magic going on before we ever get to any software architecture or line of code. That's what this blogpost is about.
In my day-to-day business, I get in touch with a lot of people, and very often I realize that we're only talking about 3 main things: complex processes, inefficient paperwork and zero connection with colleagues. But in fact we're just talking about the all-known, almost sacred nowadays, "digital workplace". This game-changing combination of those two buzzwords is all around these days.
But why? And what it's all about? Are we talking about proces optimalisation? Are we talking about introducing or improving content management systems? Or are we even introducing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural language Processing (NLP) to your peers desks? Where does digital workplace start and where does it end?
To be honest, there is no one-size-fits-all, self-explanatory answer to that million dollar question.
And this is where our plane takes off, not to seach for a copy-pasted answer for our customers, but to go that extra mile and approach their specific business needs. Our main goal is to provide a sustainable, future-proof "digital" solution.
